Sample Test Questions
Exams: Six quizzes in class : September 6 September 20 October 6 October 20 November 10 November 29 Quizzes will total 36% of the final grade (6% each). A missed quiz can be made up by visiting the Observatory five times. A total of six Observatory visits will be accepted for credit. Mid-Term exams: on September 27 and November 1, contribute 15% each to the final grade. Section 1 Final exam: Tuesday December 6, 12:30--2:30PM Section 2 Final exam: Monday December 5, 10:15AM--12:15PM Final Exam will count 34% of the final grade. This course will be graded on a curve. I expect, but do NOT promise, that the class average will be in the C range Make-up Policy: No make-up for final exam. No early finals. Make-up tests will be offered only with prior arrangement. Medical and family emergencies will be the only exceptions. In such cases documentation MUST be provided.
